Description: Café YOLK offers a wide range of Breakfasts, Omelettes, Pancakes, Waffles, Burgers, Sandwiches, Sides, Teas, Coffees, Soft drinks and Smoothies.Born from Alexandra's passion for food, the concept for Café YOLK was developed in 2012. Alex and husband Sunny decided the people of east Reading deserved more choice and a good value eatery to enjoy when venturing out for food. The Erleigh Road location was chosen for it's great position and Sunny’s local community ties and the journey began – now Café YOLK offers a stylish and affordable alternative to the usual fare on offer in the area, from breakfasts to burgers, waffles to pancakes, coffees and smoothies Café YOLK provides a cut above when it comes to taste in a chilled out atmosphere with service to make you smile.

“Cafe Yolk, Reading”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Cafe Yolk was a surprise. Food freshly cooked. Had "normal" breakfast as a brunch. Suspect super breakfast might be too much.Service good and friendly. Convenient location. A pleasant surprise.

“Great food, great service”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

I go to Yolk almost on a daily basis. I have the option of some good places in the centre of Reading, but having such a great cafe, with great food and service so close to my house, it's a no brainer. It has a great menu, with some very good option. It is always busy, which you know is a good sign for a reliable establishment. If you go at a less busy time, you know you can have a great chat with the owner and make you feel that you are just having a coffee with a friend. I go in for the food, but always go back for the food and the great atmosphere!

“Nice food but totally inefficient ”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

We have visited for lunch a few times and I must say that the food is much nicer than one would expect of a normal cafe. However each time we've gone it's taken increasingly longer to a) get served and b) get our food. Last time we had to wait 45 minutes for a toasted sandwich!

While we like to support the cafe for its obvious attempt to break into the food and drink market in Reading, please employ more staff or find another solution to the major flaw in your business model!

“Reading best cafe”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

My friends and I quite often go to Cafe Yolk to eat, I think it's the best cafe in Reading and you will have to far to beat it. Whatever you order you always come out of there satisfied and full. The service is great and the staff and owners always have a smile on their face.

“No frills - Casual breakfast - Super Tasty”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

No frills - Casual breakfast - Super Tasty!
I had the mexican omelette which was superb - although my partner had the pancakes and bacon which was a little small on the portion sizing! ( could do with bigger pancakes and more bacon)
However lovely experience! Will make sure to return!!

Note: Main customers seem to be students/young professionals
